Martin Luther King Day of Service – Trail Maintenance

What: The Bureau of Land Management and Friends of Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks have partnered with Southern New Mexico Trial Alliance to create an MLK trail maintenance day in support of giving back to our public lands and our community. This is a great opportunity to get outdoors, learn new skills, and meet new people!

 

Volunteers will meet at the La Cueva picnic area at 8am on Monday, January 15th. We will work until about 12pm but anyone can show up or leave as they wish. Trail work will consist of brushing and drainage control at the Arroyo and La Cueva trails. No experience is needed. Tools, water, and instruction will be provided. Please bring snacks, water bottle, sun protection, and any other personal items you need to be comfortable and safe on the trails.

 

We will provide water, snacks, and a BBQ lunch after 12pm.

 

First five volunteers to arrive will receive a free I HEART OMDP T-Shirt!
